Bio and Links
Bio Photo In February 2008, my son invited me to join his Geni Family Tree which sparked my interest in the family histories for myself and that of my wife. Since then, I have researched birth, death, and census records (Winning, Hudelson, Wilbur, Howell, Jolly, Dye, Oates, Hibbert, Poage, Clark and Krigbaum families) which have given me a wealth of information. I have walked cemeteries in and around California and Nevada as well as visited local museums which gave me some interesting family history. In May 2009, my wife and I took a road trip through several midwest states to walk some cemeteries as well as visit some family. While I am new to being a genealogy sleuth, it has become quite a hobby and I find it's like putting pieces of a puzzle together and oh so fun!

James, Ida, Edward and Violet Timmons
Hi John, I finally got into the little locked house of James and Ida today and there on the east wall were also Edward and Violet, sharing their niche with two other copper-colored book volumes of ashes (not with the surname of Timmons). Am editing all photogaphs over the next few days, so please check back. I will email you all once completed. Kind regards, Bridey Light

Jim's family group!
Ahoy John! I brought the new documents you emailed to me to Jim's house, along with the photographs of you and Joy at your birthday party. Showed all to Jim and Carrie. Jim said, "It's good that Rick is back in the family, thank John for me!" So now they have your faces to go along with your names. Your work is appreciated very much by Jim and his family! Kind regards, Bridey Light

Leo L. Boutin and Donald William Boutin photo requests are in, too!
Dear John, Thanks to your research in finding the cemetery of Edward Boutin, I have located his two sons (who were two of the brothers of Clifford Charles Boutin), Leo L. Boutin ( and Donald William Boutin (, also interred in Calvary Cemetery in Bayfield, WI. I have put in their photo requests with interesting notes in their bubbles. Nice photos you have already posted for Edward Senior and Junior! How did you DO that?! Kind regards, BL

Ahoy John! I have corrected all, photograph captions included. Please let me know if you find any additional errors -- I will be anxious to make corrections if so. I am transferring Elmer and Susan to you for care in your loving family hands. ~ Bridey

What an amazing photo you have posted on her memorial. Do you have a background story by any chance? Thanks for posting the photo.

RE: The Borlands
You're welcomed, John. Was surprised that Hazel Borland did not already have a memorial so was glad to be able to visit the family and get them connected.
